    This paper discusses key findings and recommendations of the Technical Assistance Report on Optimal Reform and Distributional Analysis of the Personal Income Tax (PIT). With regard to reforming the PIT schedule, it recommends that the basic credit be increased and made fully refundable to all taxpayers age 18 and older. To avoid paying this benefit to young singles, such as students, who. George R. Zodrow, John W. Diamond, in Handbook of Computable General Equilibrium Modeling, Summers OLG Model. The use of the OLG model to analyze tax reforms was pioneered by Summers () who analyzes the replacement of an income tax with two different forms of consumption-based taxation – an expenditure tax and a wage tax – using a continuous-time, single .

Saez (, Review of Economic Studies) developed a simple approach by using elasticities to derive optimal tax rates and showed that the optimal high income tax is positive and generally above 40%. Our project is to extend Saez’s approach and generalize it to a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium environment with heterogeneous. Optimal tax rates for the rich are a perennial source of controversy. This column argues that high marginal tax rates on the top 1% of earners can make society as a whole better off.

Section 5 presents the optimal nonlinear income taxation problem with particular emphasis on the optimal top tax rate and the optimal profile of means-tested transfers.

Using elasticities to derive optimal income tax rates by Emmanuel Saez Download PDF EPUB FB2

Using different estimates of elasticity and following the taxable income elasticity literature (Saez, ; Gruber and Saez, ), we derive a range of optimal tax rates for the top 1% income. This paper derives optimal income tax formulas using compensated and uncompensated elasticities of earnings with respect to tax rates.

A simple formula for the high income optimal tax rate is obtained as a function of these elasticities and the thickness of the top tail of the income distribution. Get this from a library. Using elasticities to derive optimal income tax rates.

[Emmanuel Saez; National Bureau of Economic Research.]. Emmanuel Saez in his article titled "Using Elasticities to Derive Optimal Income Tax Rates" derives a formula for optimal level of income tax using the both compensated and uncompensated elasticities.

Saez writes the tradeoff between equity and efficiency is a central consideration of optimal taxation, and implementing a progressive tax allows. The Optimal Asymptotic Income Tax Rate.

Using Elasticities to Derive Optimal Income Tax Rates Because of the high threshold for the increase in tax rates, this decline in taxable income. 30, In this article, I study the question of how to set bankruptcy exemptions optimally.

Using a canonical equilibrium model of unsecured credit, I show that, in a large class of economies, a few observable or potentially recoverable variables are sufficient to determine whether a bankruptcy exemption level is optimal, or should be increased or decreased.

Emmanuel Saez (), ‘Using Elasticities to Derive Optimal Income Tax Rates’ Joel Slemrod (), ‘Optimal Taxation and Optimal Tax Systems’ PART III TAX REFORM Martin Feldstein (), ‘On the Theory of Tax Reform’ Optimal tax theory or the theory of optimal taxation is the study of designing and implementing a tax that maximises a social welfare function subject to economic constraints.

The social welfare function used is typically a function of individuals' utilities, most commonly some form of utilitarian function, so the tax system is chosen to maximise the aggregate of individual utilities. Nov 15,  · Optimal tax rates for the rich are a perennial source of controversy.
